Build Your Board: Charcuterie and Cheese (Hands-on)

Cost: $79

Whether you’re planning an unforgettable date with someone special or an impressive happy hour spread, this hands-on course will help you master the art of the charcuterie and cheese display. Join Chef Bill Twaler in this course to understand what makes cured meats unique, how to cut and present them for maximum impact, plus how to select the right options for your tastes.

After tasting and preparing a variety of charcuterie options, you’ll also have the opportunity to sample a variety of incredible cheeses that will pair perfectly with your charcuterie board. Held in CHI’s beautiful Training Kitchen, this course goes beyond the board as you prepare traditional accompaniments such as a fruit chutney, sweet and savory nutty snacks, and quick pickles that provide much-needed acidity and balance. At the end of class, use what you’ve learned to create a board that you can eat on site or take home for your next meal.

Select the appropriate “Optional Fee” to take advantage of this course’s special date-night rate of “Two for $139.”
